Rebecca Hiscocks find inspiration in the bizarre and the macabre, her intricate and detailed compositions reflect London’s uncanny and unusual past.

Through a fascination of the internal workings of the body she has recently been researching stories about St Bartholomews and St Thomas hospitals, looking closely at the 18th century etchings of anatomical pioneer William Cheselden in order to inform her visual narrative. Rebecca uses a combination of architectural decoration and a muted pallet in order to create a softness and beauty as a contrast to the invasiveness of surgery.
